China's PV Solar system manufacturers face an increasingly tight set of environmental regulations that create outstanding opportunities for ThermoEnergy wastewater recovery solutions. A major portion of China's rivers have been deemed unsafe for human contact and China is investing approximately $475 billion in pollution prevention and treatment under a five-year plan that runs to the year 2015.
The wastewater produced by PV manufacturing contains many hazardous chemicals, including heavy metals, halogenated compounds, acids and organic contaminants. Currently, most manufacturers cope with the large amounts of contaminated wastewater by treatment and disposal. ThermoEnergy's solution offers a Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) system that is based on vacuum evaporation and flash distillation, and offers the potential to recover and reuse or recycle valuable process chemistry. The system has proven itself in comparable applications in the United States, so the extension to China, which dominates solar manufacturing, is a logical one for the high tech company.
Founded in 1988, ThermoEnergy is a diversified technologies company engaged in the worldwide development, sales and commercialization of patented and/or proprietary municipal and industrial wastewater treatment and power generation technologies. Additional information on the Company and its technologies can be found on its website at www.thermoenergy.com.
